Artist Bio

My Creative Journey

Calgary-based artist, Arnie "Arnz" Mabalay is on a mission of creating magic onto your beautiful faces using colorful paints.
Art has been ingrained in Arnz's veins even at a young age as her childhood days were filled with portraits and watercolor. This passion took a back seat for years, and in 2018 at a church event, Arnie found herself as an artist once again. As a face painter, she saw and experienced the joy brought by the happiness that lights up in everyone's faces as she transforms them into a work of art. 

Arnz' evolution as an artist continuous to grow as she aims to serve her clientele with a dash of magic, joy, and creativity.


She's a known watercolorist and a positive force in the art community. Adored by enthusiasts, customers, and brands alike. Please visit my watercolor works at Instagram account @arnie_artsy

Her natural inclination to safety and care for her clients led her to ensure strict health guidelines are followed and top-quality professional, cosmetic grade water-activated material is used.

Arnz is an artist with a heart to serve. Driven by a passion to live life in vivid colors while adding a hint of happiness and splash of glitter one face at a time.

I am proud to say that I will be attending the FABAIC 2022 (Face and Body Art International Convention) in Orlando, Florida, USA in May next year! I am so excited to meet amazing international face painters all over the world, attend classes, special events, and competitions that the FABAIC is known for.
